I used the Thorn broadheads in my old compound crossbow because it would not group with fixed blades. They fly perfectly. I got a turkey with one but nothing larger. I only use them for turkey now and fixed blades for everything else. I tried the original HPX and Rift 2.2".

It opened fine on the turkey I shot. I tested them to see if they would open before I hunted with them. I shot them through a piece of fabric taped to my 18 in 1 target. They opened every time. Make sure you get the right shear pins for your setup and you should be good.
Take care
